Subject: Great Show; but Jboy is right
Subject: One Year Ago Today......
Great show on paper, we'll see where it goes. My rating is purely based on the look and feel of how the songs lineup.
Jerry smiling and waving to the crowd at the end of Touch. Cassidy, Box (it ALWAYS rains on April 4th!) and Promised wrapped it up nicely.
2nd Set Comes a Time, Playin, Willy is relatively exotic.
I was just listening to the Miller FM seed of 3/31/87, and this sounds very close to it and other FM's of the period. Excellent quality, and from the files I've downloaded so far, sounds like a great show!
Subject: Thanks, gonzoc
Subject: upload on crack
the sound quality is great, performance is very good through playing reprise. the dew is lukewarm. jboyaguar still needs to shut up.
3 star because of not being able to download in sequence and review the first set appropriately.

Subject: no personal exploits please, just the facts
Subject: This show rocks - Classic Centrum gig
Subject: centrum gold
For 1987, this is a 5 star show.
Subject: Not 4/3... but a positive experience.
2nd Set: A lively "Iko" opens up proceedings with a pronouncing "Playin" to follow. It's active but never quite reaches outer space... Alright, a semi-rarity pops its head..."Comes" is not exactly beautiful, but Garcia's trying, and that's all that really matters. "Hind Jive" is nicely fleshed out, and a keen change of selection from the "Man Smart" spot. It also displays a willingness to pull the proverbial rabbit out of thin air, anything can happen or be played at a GD show. For instance, now the anticipation grows out of "Drums/Space" as minor chord teases of several songs keep us wondering...will they choose this? Indeed, it is "Truckin" a good sing-along version. Jane's living on 'crack' tonight. A straight-ahead rockin' "Playing Reprise" follows. "Morning Dew" has quite a bit of muster and force behind its buildup, but falls apart before the audience can feel its awe-inspiring aura.
Of course, it's "Saturday Night" Solid but Mydland's too strong in the mix.
A stronger show than 4-6-87.

This is a beauty. Love it! had the Playin>Comes>Jive on tape back in high school and played it to death. If you are into 80's dead- this is a must. A gem from start to finish
Subject: You're all very welcome!!
The smoking Hand Jive was all the boys, however...
One othe note--although I rate it 5 stars here, the way Dew fizzles out at the end (and just when it's building up so nicely, too :( ) is a bit of a bummer, but it smokes all the way up to that point.
Subject: hot hot hot
Subject: 5 star stuff
the great AUD lets you really enjoy this one, I guarantee you'll listen to this second set over and over again....
Iko, Comes a Time, Hand Jive, Dew....everything about this show is 5-star, and just wait for Truckin'....it'll get you singing along and your heart pumping!
